How long does it take to charge the BMW 225xe?

Charging the BMW 225xe takes approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes to charge from zero to full using a typical 7kW home charging point.

However, most drivers "top up" their EV, so charging times are often much shorter. Plus, our smart EV chargers let you schedule a charge overnight, allowing your EV to recharge its battery while you recharge yours!

For rapid charging, the BMW 225xe uses a None connector and is capable of charging at a rate of up to kW, which can deliver a 20-80% charge in around 9 minutes.

What is the range of the BMW 225xe?

The range of the BMW 225xe is 25 miles. This is the WLTP-certified range, which is based on a standardised test all electric vehicles go through in Europe.

Just like the MPG figure on a petrol or diesel vehicle, the official range of an electric car should be taken as a guide to help compare with other vehicles rather than a guaranteed range for day-to-day driving. The actual full electric range will vary depending on driving efficiency, speed, temperature, weather conditions and more.  

What is the battery size of the BMW 225xe?

The battery size of the BMW 225xe is 7.7kWh.

Battery sizes on electric vehicles vary from around 30kWh (kilowatt hours) to as big as 100kWh and higher. The bigger the battery the more range you get generally speaking, although the vehicle's weight and efficiency are huge factors in the actual range available. 

There are also steps you can take to prolong the life of an EV battery. Check out our guide to electric vehicle battery maintenance for tips on keeping your EV in tip-top health.

What happens when an EV battery eventually dies though? Many of the parts can be re-used or recycled - learn more about what happens to an electric car battery at the end of its life.

What is the company car tax rate for the BMW 225xe?

The company car tax rate (also known as benefit in kind rate) for the BMW 225xe is 14%.

How much benefit-in-kind tax you'll need to pay for your electric vehicle will depend on its emissions, its range and its worth. You can check out our guide to company car tax for electric cars to learn more.
